CRICKET Saturday 16
BENSON AND HEDGES CUP
0 Scotland v Yorkshire Hamilton Crescent. Glasgow. 10.30am. Final match in Scotland‘s League section. although on past experience we are likely to be playing only for pride at this stage.

0 Race Days Tuesday. Thursday and Saturday. Powderhall Stadium. Beaverhall Road. Edinburgh. Race meetings are for ten races. starting at 7.30pm. £2.20 Stand; £1 .30 Ground.
FOOTBALL Saturday 16
SCOTTISH CUP FINAL
0 Dundee Utd v St Mirren Hampan Park. Glasgow (2 mins from Mount Florida Station). Stand £10. £7: family section £4 (child £1 ): ground £4 (cash at gate). 3pm. This match is billed as the Friendly Final in an attempt to woo the neutrals. neither club being noted for their massive support. On the field. though. it could be a fascinating match if the nerves don't take too firm a grip. United must start favourites. even allowing fora difficult midweek European final to come next week.
FOUR NATIONS TOURNAMENT
0 Scotland v Holland Starks Park. Kirkcaldy. The semi-pros from the lower divisions get the chance to represent their country in a tournament which Scotland won last year. Prices for all matches: Stand £2; Ground£1.50(£l).

0 Scotland v England Hampden Park. Glasgow (2 mins from Mount Florida Station) Ground tickets £4. 1
shudder to think what England‘s superior (if slightly over-rated) squad may do to our thoroughly disorganist outfit. Andy Roxburgh has signally failed to find a coherent team in his short reign as manager. with no continuity of performance or selection emerging so far. Bottom line. I fear. is that we simply don't have players of real international calibre at the moment.
Anyone who doubted the worth of Souness can surely now see the difference he made in organising the side on the field.
0 Scotland v Brazil flampden Park (as above). All-ticket. Wing stand £8: Ground £4. This could be even more embarrassing. ifslightly less painful. Not one of Brazilian football's vintage periods at the moment. but they are always worth watching. (See photo).
0 Strathclyde Sheriffs v Glasgow Diamonds Lochinch Playing Fields. Pollok Park. Glasgow. 2pm. FIRST DIVISION
0 Ayr Burners v lnverclyde Crusaders Dan Dark Stadium. Ayr. 2pm.
0 Lothian Chieftains v East Kilbride Pirates Creamery Park. Bathgate. 2pm.
0 Glasgow Lions v Fylde Falcons Helenvale Park. Tollcross. Glasgow. 2pm. Glasgow have begun disastrously in the top divison. with consecutive home defeats. and will be anxious to atone against the Falcons.

TENNIS Monday 25—Saturday 3D
0 Prudential Junior British Hardcourt Championships Craiglockhart Sports Centre. 177 Colinton Road. Edinburgh. Buzz is all for the Scottish Championships next month. but the Under-12 and Under-14s get their chance this week. and will certainly be worth a look. The senior event is a certain sell-out. at least in the later stages when the star names take the court; advance ticket applications are being accepted by post at the SLTA. 12 Melville Crescent. Edinburgh EH3 7LU (031 225 1284 for details).
VOLLEYBALL Saturday 23/Sunday 24
